All Time Favorite Songs

New songs come and go on the radio. Over time one gets tired of listening to the same song over and over again. Same is with my liking of song/music. If I find a good song then I listen to it until I can't bare to hear it ever played again. I've come to notice a pattern in my music liking and it might be the same for everybody.

Whenever I become fond of a particular song, this song goes through three phases of fancy. In the first phase, I can't get enough of the song, I want to hear it as much as I can over and over. As the number of times hearing that song increases, my desire to hear it goes down to a point, where I don't enjoy listening to it. This is where the degree of fancy enters the second phase. In the second phase, the degree of fancy is neutral, where I don't enjoy hearing the song, nor do I mind it being played or am irritated by it. As time progresses, my degree of fancy completely diminishes in the third (last) phase. In this phase, I can hardly bare to hear the song being played, even in the background. The very sound of it is like a sharp sting in my brain. It feels as if the sound waves of the song are jamming my brain waves. Every time I driven along with a friend in a car with that song playing becomes a traumatic experience. I always go "find a happy place, find a happy place"!

The time span for a particular music/song to go through this process is usually between one day to a few of months. Some songs or music tracks I don't ever get tired of listening. These songs/tracks are few in number, but each time I hear them is just like the first time I heard it.

Those tracks are:

  1. Anggun - Snow on the Sahara feat. Enigma

  7. K-Pax OST - Grand Central (Edward Shermur)
  8. Keane - Somewhere Only We Know
  9. LeAnn Rimes - Cant Fight The Moonlight (remix)
  10. Liz Phair - Why Can't I Breathe
  11. Matrix OST - Clubbed to Death (Rob D)
  12. Michelle Branch - You Set Me Free
  13. Seal - Kiss From A Rose (Acoustic)
  14. Silent Hill 2 - Theme Of Laura (Reprise)
  15. Silent Hill 2 - True
  16. Sixpence None The Richer - Don't Dream It's Over
  17. Switchfoot - I Dare You To Move
  18. U2 - Mission Impossible Theme
  19. U2 - Stuck In A Moment
  20. Unreal - Straylight
  21. Vertical Horizon - Best I Ever Had
  22. Vertical Horizon - Everything You Want


  1. Have you heard Rob Dougan's Furious Angels? You should(its on the 2nd matrix's soundtrack)

  2. Yes I have. I've also heard his whole new album(Furious Angels). I don't think any of his tracks are upto the level of his first work which is "Clubbed to Death".

  3. the "clubbed to death" on the matrix ost is just a remix... have you heard the original and do you think you can get it for me?
